right but you should better file a new bug for your specific issue  
the 5.4.80 kernel. I'd expect they backported something from mainline
to that kernel which now breaks the vbox code again. 5.4 is a LTS (long  
time support)
kernel release and gets backports. The bug mentioned below really is about
a much more broader series of problems with the just released 5.10 stable
